The LCM Visitation and Overseers teams fulfill a ministry of encouragement and comfort and presence. Through these ministries we connect with the members of LCM, and reassure them that we, The Church, care for them and desire to be in a continued relationship for building each other up in the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 25:34-36 says:
34Then the King will say to those on his right, Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
The Visitation Team
reaches out to those that are shut-in, hospitalized, and or otherwise unable to come to church any longer, but desire to remain a member of our family at LCM. We bring the Joy of the Lord and celebrate with them the sacrament of Holy Communion. We bring reassurance that together with their entire LCM family as part of the body of Christ, God loves them.
The Overseers Ministry
group makes an extra effort to contact each LCM member about three times a year to let them know that they are loved and cared for by LCM. They remind members to contact the LCM church office about any issues they are having, prayer requests, if they know of anyone who is sick or hospitalized so that Pastors know they can minister to and pray for them.
If you have an interest in or feel "called" to be involved with either of these ministries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 763-561-5852 x203.
